What Anderson said about beating Arsenal 8-2 in amazing Premier League result


Anderson, the hero of Manchester United made a deep impression with an 8-2 win over Arsenal in the 2011 Premier League.

Few thought the Gunners would win, especially after Manchester City and Barcelona had Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas.


But nobody thought United would hit them for eight – which they did on a breathtaking afternoon at Old Trafford.


However, no one expected that United would strike them for eight and they did so on a stifling afternoon at Old Trafford.


Danny Welbeck, who later played for Arsenal, scored with a brilliant header.

When Theo Walcott scored in the third minute of extra time towards the end of the first half, it gave Arsenal hope of a comeback.
